You know those days when Murphy’s Law goes into overdrive? I had one of those yesterday. I won’t go into details, but trust me. at the end of the day I was miserable. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong. I was bothered by it all night and kept claiming the peace of God to settle my spirit.
When I got up this morning, I wasn’t looking forward to going to work. I knew what I had to face — the effects of yesterday. But then a wonderful thing happened. The Lord spoke to me. Quietly, in my heart, I heart Him say, When the enemy comes in like a flood.
At first, I didn’t pay attention to it until it repeated two or three times. Then I had to stop and think about. What is that verse anyway? So I looked it up. When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. (Isa 59:19)
Awesome! Suddenly my day went from depressing to jubilant. I could easily see the angel of the Lord planting a huge flag on a pole in front of the hoards of the enemy. Planting that flag sends shock waves through the enemy ranks and the scatters them like fleas.
My day has been nothing like yesterday. The atmosphere has been completely different and I am so grateful to God for going before me. He worked because I trusted Him to work. If I had ignored His word, or failed to trust Him, I would still be stressed. So, how is your day going?
